Webinar “Dismissal during COVID-19: What are your options?”

Publication date: 14 October 2020
Watch our webinar to learn how you can soften the consequences of the coronavirus by changing the employment conditions of employees. And what should you take into account in case of dismissal during COVID-19?

Many entrepreneurs are hit hard by the coronavirus and are struggling with the consequences. Employers are looking for a solution by, for example, changing the employment conditions of employees. This could include a temporary reduction of salary or compulsory use of holidays. Sometimes taking these (temporary) measures is no longer sufficient. In order to guarantee the continuity of your company, you will have to dismiss employees.

The search for a solution raises many questions. After all, how does the (unilateral) amendment of employment conditions work? And what should you take into account in case of dismissal during COVID-19? What role does your Works Council play in this? On Wednesday, 7 October, our employment lawyers discussed these topics during a practical webinar. Below you can watch this webinar.
